Mere humlet end en normal barleywine, med noter af kandis og citrus. En rigtig nydeøl her i julen.

Bottle from Alko claiming to be imperial red ale. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Sweet aroma of raisins, yeast, alcohol and bubblegum. Alcohol, some more bubblegum and a bit too sweet for my taste. Full body with thick texture and soft carbonation.

It’s really not to bad. A sweet and mild backbone with a nice amount of alcohol. It’s masked pretty well. A little heat at the finish but it’s mostly sweet. To me, it deserves a higher rate for handling >11% pretty well.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Terrible beer. Claims to be an imperial red, but there is nothing red about it. Listed as a barley wine, but it tastes more like a corked glass of wine. Huge disappointment.

12 Oz bottle poured. Oily orange pour with a soapy bubble head. Odd malt aroma. Flavor is a big alcohol up front, with a cool finish. No interesting or appealing flavor here. Bottle conditioned rubbing alcohol. Poured.

Bottle. Quite alright. The taste is very sweet and at the same time rather strong. Doesn’t look too good though.
